Social Marketing 2.0 — How to Seed the Social Graph

Our COO and co-founder, Jed Carlson is in San Francisco at Billboard’s FutureSound conference giving a really ground-breaking presentation on how to use Facebook’s social graph to exponentially grow your fan base. I’ve got a copy of the slides and thought those of you not in SF, might enjoy a peek. His message is super positive, revolving around the simple fact that there are fans out there for EVERY musician. And, with smart use of social marketing, for many artists it can be less expensive to find new fans (even on the other side of the world) than to convert folks in their own backyard.

Take a look and let us know what you think.
